San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers, who has been on the disabled list since May 19 with a wrist injury, will swing a light bat Sunday, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. Myers was shut down following a setback while hitting off a tee in July, but assistant general manager Josh Stein said Myers is making good progress with his recovery. “We feel good with where he is at, the treatment, the resistance (work) and his range of motion," Stein said. "The next step is the bat. Once you get to the bat, once you get him on a rehab assignment, we'll have a much clearer focus of when he'll be beck and playing." Myers is hitting .277/.327/.459 with five home runs and 19 runs batted in over 35 games this season. He still does not have a timetable to return.

San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers could resume swinging this weekend as he continues to recover from a wrist injury, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. Myers does not have a timetable for return after being shut down last month due to soreness in his wrist, but he said at the end of July that he will take his time to ensure that he will be healthy for the rest of the season. “Having two wrist injuries that I’ve rushed back from, I know what it takes to get back from those experiences,” Myers said. “I definitely want to make sure I take it slow and I’m ready to come back and help the team compete. Because I know if I come back, if it's a week or even a day too soon, I won't be in the level that I could be. I want to make sure I'm right when I come back."

San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers will be evaluated in five or six days after being shut down Sunday while recovering from a wrist injury, according to MLB.com. Myers was thought to be progressing after having surgery to remove a bone spur in June, as he had begun to swing a bat, but he felt renewed discomfort in the wrist, which led to an additional examination. “We’re going to be cautious with this and see what the discomfort is all about,” assistant general manager Fred Uhlman Jr. told the San Diego Union Tribune. “He felt fine swinging and then afterwards it was a little bit sore moving around. Rather than continue with his hitting program we've shut him down for 24 to 48 hours.” There is no word on when Myers will resume swinging, as he will receive physical therapy until his evaluation.

San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers will have his surgically-repaired left wrist examined in Arizona on Monday, according to the team's official website. Myers recently resumed swinging a bat lightly after taking a month off to rest and recover, but the increased activity level led to renewed soreness. He underwent surgery in mid-June to remove a bone spur from his left wrist, originally hoping to return in four-to-six weeks. Myers' absence will now stretch to at least eight weeks, and he may require a lengthy rehab assignment. He has played just three games since May 10, putting his status in question for the rest of the season. His absence has allowed outfielders Melvin Upton Jr. and Wil Venable to get most of the playing time in center field, but both players have struggled in July, posting batting averages below .200 and on-base percentages below .300.

San Diego Padres outfielder Wil Myers will begin swinging a bat next week while recovering from surgery on his left wrist, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. Myers will continue with strengthening exercises for the immediate future with an eye on a return in mid-August. He has been sidelined since June 13, and was hitting .277 with five home runs and 19 RBI before going down with the injury. Myers had a bone spur removed from his wrist and may be looking at a new position upon his return. He played 29 games in center field and five games at first base prior to surgery. The Padres are actively trying to trade current left fielder Justin Upton, who is in the final year of his contract, and Myers could slide over in the event of a deal. "He can probably go anywhere he wants if he puts his mind to it, " Padres interim manager Pat Murphy said. "It’s not out of the question that he can play anywhere in the outfield, first, third. Those are the favorites. But all of them he needs work at, because he’s a young player that needs to learn how to become a great defender."

Myers (wrist) underwent successful surgery Thursday to remove a bone spur in his left wrist.

Myers has been ruled out for approximately eight weeks because of the wrist issue. As a result, Will Venable will continue to receive everyday starts in center field, with Melvin Upton likely figuring into the mix on occasion as well. However, Myers should retake his role when he rejoins the club.
